AbyssWings by Scourgeseer AbyssWings by Scourgeseer
well well well would you look at me, the person who originally was against fantribes turned around and made one. iconic

aight so these are a closed species so don't make your own. for now

here's everything that I didn't say on the ref:

AbyssWings are the descendants of SeaWings who, fearing the demise of their tribe some years after the Scorching, fled to a trench off the coast of the Rainforest Kingdom and stayed there. For thousands of years.

Presently, their descendants are SeaWing morphs with huge, elongated fins, dark colors, flightless wings, intricate luminescent markings, and adaptions to survive in the murky depths of their deep sea home

They can also have names like Kraken, Leviathan, Hydra, ect.


Survival Abilities:
-amazing swimmers
-can see in pitch darkness
-bioluminescence is used for hunting and luring prey towards them, along with communicating with others and impressing a potential mate
-gills are efficient in filtering out mud and volcanic soot from the water
-they can withstand freezing cold temperatures and crushing pressure

Disablities
-they can't be out of water for more than an hour, before they start to suffocate and their gills dry out
-they're nearly blind in bright light, another reason why they don't surface much
-they can't fly (duh)
-after more than two hours above the surface, they pass out from lack of pressure, this can lead into a coma and eventually, death


Relationships with other Tribes
MudWings/SandWings/SkyWings/IceWings- never heard of them
RainWings - sometimes the corpse of one washes up on their beaches, usually after seeing these, they run away or give the "pretty dark SeaWings" a burial and forget about it
NightWings - know about them through the RainWing stories
SeaWings - occasionally, a weary SeaWing gets lost exploring the deep sea and they are helped to the surface by a sympathetic AbyssWing. however, these happen so rarely that the AbyssWings are regarded as a myth among most SeaWings.

Animus powers
A very long time ago, an AbyssWing princess fell in love with a SeaWing prince (who happened to be an animus). Together, they had a secret clutch of hybrid eggs. Tragically, the AbyssWing council found out and she was banished to the frigid IceWing kingdom, where she would swim below the icebergs and floating ice until the end of her days. It's unknown what happened to her. But, her eggs hatched and it has been passed down through the generations to modern day. Animus dragonets are typically treated like IceWing animuses: they give a single gift before forfeiting their power forever. There hasn't been an animus dragon in years, however, so many believe it was lost.

Hybrids
Like in the animus story, SeaWing/AbyssWing hybrids can exist, but they're usually weak fliers and can't be in deep water for a long time. And since the AbyssWings are reclusive, hybrids are very unlikely.

With all other tribes, hybrids are pretty much mpossible and all offspring probably wouldn't make it that long, considering the immense differences. It would be like trying to breed an anglerfish with a goldfish.

Society
AbyssWings have a system pretty similar to IceWings, despite the two tribes having never met. The Queen runs a Royal Council, which decides what happens in the tribe and what animus magic is used for. The animus dragons are tested at age 3, after this they are given until their 7th birthday to create a single gift for the tribe. After this, their animus magic is harvested by the use of an ancient talisman to prevent them from using it against the monarchy. Once inside the talisman, their magic essentially recharges the talisman for more powerful spells over time.

It is the goal of most AbyssWings to "sink", which basically means to become wealthy and descend to the wealthier districts below them.

For wealthy families, marriages are usually arranged by the parent, most of the time without the will of their dragonet. The parents of a noble family always enthusiastically try to wed their son to a princess to boost their status, as marrying a prince to their daughter wouldn't really give them much of a boost.

The Three Cities (Added 2/21/17)
Closest to the surface is Day City. Day City is a scattering of cave dens near the edge of the trench. The area is poor, crime-ridden, and generally miserable as most residents either were born into poverty or lived in the deeper zones and became cast out. Predator watch is a job some residents take up for better pay. This involves sitting in a tower at the edge of the trench and watching for any predator such as a sperm whale or giant squid to try and enter the trench. Day City is also the oldest city; their SeaWing ancestors lived here for centuries before adapting fully to the deeper sea.

A bit further down is Twilight City. Twilight City is generally better than Day City money and crime wise. It is the largest city, about 60% of all AbyssWings live there. The city is mainly houses and towers on ledges or burrowed into the cliff side.

The furthest down is Midnight City. Midnight City is the deepest, zone of the trench. The tribe's wealthiest and royal family live down here. This city is the smallest of the three, but it contains more wealth and power than the other two combined. All buildings in Midnight City are elaborate and beautiful, which is bittersweet considering that they were likely constructed by Day City workers. The Royal Council runs from Midnight City. At the absolute deepest part of the trench is where the Royal Palace is. It lies on a volcanic bed that warms up the rooms and sets an eerie red glow from inside.
